Pros: Xara Designer Pro365 (version 15.0 tested) is an absolutely robust and well-integrated software package for design, photo manipulation, Illustration, layout, DTP and web design tasks. It is Windows Vista/7/8/10 compatible. Very fast and stable. A capable alternative to Adobe Photoshop.

You can professionally create different graphic design elements for the professional looking logos, a web responsive mock websites and much more. It has a sophisticated photo edit and manipulation tool. It is an easy-to-use once you learn the basics. The following features I like:

1. Help, tutorial, and support sections.

2. Over a million different archive photos and illustrations.

3. Hundreds of templates, filters, effects, layouts, and elements of all kinds.

4. Regular updates and upgrades.

5. Unlimited Undo/Redo function.

6. PDF manipulation and export functions.

7. 3-D objects Manipulation.

8. Many creative effects.

9. Adobe plugins integration.

10. Up to 25,601% zoom for very detailed work.

11. Intelligent scaling.

12. Color separation.

13. Many data formats including Raw formats.

14. Interactive presentations.

Cons: I would like to see a phone instead of an email only support and some people may desire Xara Designer ProX365 localization in languages other than English and German. Also, Xara Designer ProX365 comes with their version of the subscription program called the Update Service. That's why there is the number 365 in the name. It is free for the first 12 months from the date you buy the software, and it keeps your software up-to-date for one year with new updates and improvements.

After the initial 365 days of updates expire, you have to pay for renewal at a discounted price. If you decide not to pay for your renewal, you can continue to use your software plus all the updates they granted you for the first 12 months. But If you for some reason, reinstall the software even on the same computer and do not pay for another 12 months of renewal, you will lose all of your updates accumulated in the first 12 months. Then, the software reverts to its original, basic form just as it was when you bought it 12 months ago.

So, since it is just a preview of the next year update, Xara cannot grant you a continuous use of those new features unless you pay for the next 12 months. I suggest further reading of their fine print, terms, and conditions.

Overall: Xara Web Designer Pro 365 has an enormous number of features. It will give you an integrated solution for almost all of your design, layout, DTP, Illustration and web design needs. The learning path is worth diving in. It is a stable, professional product that belongs in the top ten tools of my design toolbox. It carries a modest price and has a rather confusing update service. If you are in a small or medium business as a freelancer, UX/UI/web designer, a publisher or a photographer just to name a few, I suggest that you give Xara Designer Pro 365 a try. Definitely recommended.

Pros: Vector editing, photo editing and enhancing, web design, layout and print design, presentations are also available all in one package. Did I mention vector editing? Yup! Now lets add some cloud editing option on the last release!

Memory (RAM) consumption is quite low compared to Illustrator or Photoshop, which makes it a great option for basic computers.

Cons: Coming from other graphics software Xara Designer could mean a new learning challenge, but the curve is not that steep. The interface is quite simple to understand after a few runs but the color picker and the layers palette could mean the dedication of minutes of playing around to fully understand how to get things running to usual designing times.

Transparency options are also limited as compared to Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. Masking could also be cumbersome and understanding how they work needs some trial and error hence they work together with the layers palette (under masks options).

Overall: Xara Designer Pro X is actually now my first go to application on a daily basis.

Mainly because it runs pretty smoothly on my desktop computer and laptop as well. I do a lot of presentations and print design where photo editing is now necessary. I could do these chores with Illustrator and Photoshop running side by side, and I still do when the job requires the need of all the tools and options of these two, but the use of RAM starts to lag the computers in a matter of hours when many layers and vector points start to sum up, but for not complex designs Xara Designer has it all.

Ever tried to edit a PDF file in Photoshop and Illustrator from another source that is not yours? Well, Xara Designer makes editing PDF files is a breeze and it respects the original formatting and design.

Pros: I love the flexibility of this program. It has a lot of capability and is still and light program that does not bog down your system.

Cons: It can be buggy at times and customer support is overseas so it takes a long time for them to hit you back. I wish this was available on MAC. They have a new software that is cloud based but it is not up to par yet.

Overall: Overall, Xara has been a good value for our team. It is a little Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign wrapped up into one package. The file sizes are generally small and the programs run light and fast. I have been able to train our team on this relatively quickly.

Love This!

Pros: So, I simply use this product for Photo editing, but it can do so much more. I think this product stand closely next to Adobe Illustrator & Corel, but...easier to learn and understand because the platform layout is not complicated and cluttered.

Cons: They do have a free trial...however I think it is worth the money. If you are a Designer or Photographer, then get this.

Overall: This can help you scale images, enhance and clean-up backgrounds like a pro!

Pros: I loved that this is a flat rate program. So many programs are switching to subscription. This program can be a huge cost savings to companies who have previously used Adobe products. The program is easy to use and even if you're not a graphic designer, this program is fairly easy to navigate and get the job done.

Cons: Product support isn't great. The company just seems to be worried about selling the product than assisting with questions.
